How do we determine who owns the CF nameservers?

We have a client website,, with nameservers running through Cloudflare, but nobody knows who owns the Cloudflare account. How do we determine who owns this Cloudflare account with these nameservers?

Hi @mark1,

There is no way to determine this, unless you have access to the email address on the account. You would need to search past emails to see if you have any from Cloudflare. They do also have a “forgot email” feature, but that will just send an email to the account owner for a specific domain.

If you don’t have access to the email address, there’s no way to get access to the account and you would need to set it up from scratch on a new account if you want to use Cloudflare.


OK, thanks very much!
